Academy Watercolor Round Size 6 Brush
Several sizes of white taklon filaments are encased within a seamless brass plated nickel ferrule, making our brushes less likely to shed or lose their handles after repeated use. Varied filament sizes allow for an amazing capacity to hold liquid, and for laying down color in smooth, fluid strokes. An Academy brush is exceptionally durable and maintains a perfect shape even with repeated use. It also cleans up easily and is less prone to breakage than many other watercolor brushes.

This lightweight palette contains 7 small wells and 2 additional medium sized wells for holding tubed color, mixing, and diluting color with water. The bright white color allows artists to see the exact color they lay down on paper, and cleans easily with soap and water.
